Behold the Black Sapote, a.k.a “the Chocolate Pudding Fruit”. Anyone who has tried this fruit will tell you that it really does taste very much like chocolate pudding (not like some other sorry excuses for gluten free substitutes) and even has the same consistency too. Of course they’re a much healthier alternative to the real deal, lower in fat and contain about four times as much vitamin C as your average orange.
This was the first time I’ve ever had the pleasure of trying a black sapote, also known as the ‘chocolate pudding fruit’ - and let me tell you, its colloquial name is no exaggeration. The taste and texture is unbelievable. It’s up there with medjool dates on the Nature’s Miracles list for sure. Sadly this is the only place I’ve ever found them (at Mullumbimby famers’ markets about 20 minutes from Byron Bay) but they were sourced from Far North Queensland... I NEED TO TRY THIS
